Heresy Era Imperial Fists - Templar Brethren and Cataphractii Terminators painting continues...

Quick hit today, while I brace for the imminent snowpocalypse! Supposed to get a foot of snow overnight, and it's already coming down pretty good. On the other hand, it's also forecast to be around 55°F on Sunday. Gotta love Colorado!


Got (most) of the black cleaned up and then started adding in some colors in the meantime! The usual power field blue really pops against the black and yellow, and the green garlands add another layer of visual interest to what was a fairly drab looking set of models, earlier! Next up will be all the silver trimwork around the various armour plates, which should help give them a little more depth.

As I'm expecting to work from home tomorrow (no way am I going to do a 40 mile commute in a foot+ of snow) I'm hoping I can sneak up to the loft and do a little painting over my lunch hour. Rather enjoying how they're coming along so far, and I'm already envisioning what the Land Raider transport for 'em is going to look like in a similar black livery!

The looks really good mate. When the bases are painted they should properly pop. I'm looking forward to the land raider, which model are you going for?

Coming along well mate. The subtle dry brush blue on the hammers is a nice counter to the bright swords

Looking good - at this rate you'll have done each of the legions (and sold them ;)) before we read about the battle for Terra!

Nice work! I love what you're doing with this army.

Bunch of angry wasp looking buggers. Enjoying seeing where these are going.

@Col. Hertford: Thanks man! Going with the FW Mk.IIB land raider - Not quite as heresy as the Proteus variant, but a little more archaic than the modern one. Gonna be filled with assault troops so the front ramp is key!

@Frothing Muppet: Cheers bud!

@Sir Tainly: Haha! Slowly working my way through 'em!

@#2501: Thanks very much!

@Dai: Thanks! It's been fun to reverse the color scheme on these vets!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

We're supposed to get hammered on Sunday. It's been bloody cold this week.

I enjoy watching you churn out units.

@CJ Kilbride: Indeed, it's been nuts!

@ScottShoemaker: Thanks man! A little bit of work each day!
